World-renowned violinist Pinchas Zukerman has been a soloist of international stature for decades, admired for the sincerity and technical brilliance of his playing, but he is also a respected educator and conductor.
Pinchas Zukerman formed the Zukerman Chamber Players in 2002 with protégés from Canada’s National Arts Centre, and their rare but inspirational performances combine sophisticated artistry with a huge expressive range.
The group brings a richly melodic programme to The Queen’s Hall, from the simple beauty of Beethoven’s singlemovement B flat Piano Trio to the joyful, expansive tunes of Mendelssohn’s D minor Piano Trio, one of his most enduringly popular works. In between, they perform Kodály’s folkinspired Duo, a cornerstone of the chamber repertoire.
‘The cleanly articulated performance was elevated by an uncommon passion’
